ADOPT A ZERO WASTE LIFESTYLE

ADOPT A ZERO WASTE LIFESTYLE

Day a day we produce and use a lot of single-use plastics that we may think : it is just one for plastics fork or one plastic straw, how bad can it be? well, maybe if you put 7 billion people saying the same thing everyday it changes right? Trying to live a zero waste lifestyle means to make the less waste and trash in our day-to-day life. It involves a lot of motivation and commitment. Living a zero waste life doesn't happen overnight it is a process. How to do this? Well, plastic bottles and plastic bags are the worst single-use offenders that mostly end up in our oceans. A good way to start a zero waste life is getting a reusable bottle and bags for groceries! to avoid the plastic bags in the checkout. I consider myself a coffee person, so instead of asking for a take away cup i have my keep cup always with me. There are so many changes that I'm making in this journey to a zero waste life like reusable straws, containers, bamboo toothbrushes, among others. I'm in this process for almost 10 months already and it feels so good to know that you are actually doing something to stop this climate and environment crisis. From caring comes change and like a rubbish bin, the earth is filling up with trash. "We don't need just a couple of people doing zero waste perfectly, we need a million doing it imperfectly." -Anne Marie Bonneau (zero waste chef)

Yesterday I went shopping with a couple of friends and we all brought our shopping bags! in that way we don't get stuck with different plastic bags from different retailers

Getting your ice latte from your favorite coffee shop has never been this zero waste! Bring your own jar and straw so you don't take the disposables and make your drink look more personalized and cute

Never heard of shampoo bars? It's just the regular shampoo without nasty chemicals bad for you and the ocean as well. In this way you don't buy a shampoo in a plastic bottle that probably we are not gonna use again

Going to the drive in movies? what about bringing a healthy snack in reusable containers instead of paying over the price snacks in single use packaging from the movies
